WiFi Impressionist
Wifi Impressionist ist eine Feldinstallation, die elektromagnetische Landschaften zeichnet, die von den Stadtlandschaften von William Turner inspiriert sind. Die Arbeit besteht aus einer Richtantenne auf einem Schwenk-Neigungs-Mechanismus, der auf WiFi-Signale wartet und ein dreidimensionales Modell der umgebenden Signale erstellt. Aus diesem Modell wird ein Ansichtsfenster ausgewählt, das die Perspektive und den Rahmen definiert. Signale, die innerhalb des Rahmens aufgenommen werden, werden als Wellen dargestellt, die von einem bestimmten Ursprung ausgesendet und mit einem mobilen Plotter gezeichnet werden. Die Antenne und der Plotter sind beide auf einem Stativ montiert und können auf dem Feld platziert werden, so wie ein Maler seine Staffelei aufstellen würde. Sobald eine Zeichnung positioniert und ausgerichtet ist, wird sie mit der Zeit dichter, abhängig von der Dichte der Netzwerke um sie herum. Überall dort, wo ein WiFi-Signal vorhanden ist, füllt die Zeichnung schließlich den Rahmen.

WiFi Impressionist
Wifi Impressionist is a field installation that draws electromagnetic landscapes inspired by the cityscapes of William Turner. The work consists of a directional antenna on a pan-tilt mechanism that listens for WiFi signals and builds a three dimensional model of the signals around it. From this model a viewport is selected that defines the perspective and the frame. Signals that are picked up within the frame are visualised as waves emitted from a specific origin and drawn using a mobile plotter. The antenna and the plotter are both mounted on a tripod and can be placed in the field much like a painter would set up his easel. Once positioned and oriented a drawing becomes denser over time depending on the density of networks around it. Wherever there is a WiFi signal, the drawing will eventually fill the frame.

Quayola

Landscape Paintings
Jardins d’Été by Quayola pays homage to the tradition of french impressionism and the late works of Claude Monet.The second iteration of this series of artworks investigates the ways in which nature is observed, studied and synthesized, becoming a point of departure towards abstration. Quayola recreated similar conditions to the classical impressionist landscape paintings, however he engaged with an extensive technological apparatus to capture the sensitive nuances of reality beyond our senses. Here natural landscapes are observed and analysed through the eye of the machine, and re-purposed through new modes of visual synthesis.

Faun

Faun started from a desire to create a performance around dancer James O’Hara. As part of the centenary celebrations of the Ballets Russes, Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London also invited Cherkaoui to work on or draw inspiration from any of the pieces of the repertoire of the legendary company. Cherkaoui chose L’après midi d’un faune, Nijinski’s choreography inspired by Stéphane Mallarmé’s poem and danced on Claude Debussy’s impressionistic music. Nijinski’s version based itself on Greek representations on vases, it was very two dimensional, very classical yet also daring, sexual and quite controversial in it’s time.

Matthew Day Jackson creates all-encompassing works in a wide range of media that make connections between seemingly disparate themes and narratives, from Impressionist painting to the surface of the moon; art history to rap music; nuclear testing to paranormal activity. Jackson’s work also addresses his theory of the “Horriful,” the belief that everything one does has the potential to evoke both beauty and horror at the same time.
